That looks awesome, beautiful receiver and beautiful case !
My latest Marantz pick up. A 6320 turntable. I'll be adding a SME series III tonearm with fluid damping and a Stanton 881s cartridge.
That's so disappointing. I know the feeling. I had the same problem with my JBL L80t3s, same crappy packing job. I patched up the corners and still have them.
I just received this yesterday and it works really well out of the box. It needs a cleaning and alignment but it is working and sounding good as is.

I just got my 2275 back a week or so ago from Glenn McDonald (aka: EchoWars) and it's now completely restored. It wasn't without it's hurdles, as it had to make a special trip up north to Mike Williams in Flint, MI to get the tuner straightened out, as in its earlier days it suffered from the dreaded "cat urination" on top of it. Originally it was thought to have missed anything important, but apparently over time it started to corrode the IF board and pretty much ruined the tuner on it. It's all fine and and dandy now though and this thing is so beautiful (both sight and sound!). It'd been a long time goal of mine to get it completely restored, as it was my fathers originally and it was passed on to me. Letting him see the finished product has been pretty cool, to say the least. That and I got a replica WC-22 case for it, as he always regretted no getting one originally. Anyway, it's my only Marantz piece...but hopefully someday I can fill out the rest of my living room system to match it.
^^^ Loved hearing the story 'cash'. May you enjoy it for many years!
Great story and great receiver. I"m loving mine since I restored it. May it give you years and years of great sound.....and memories.

Very nice heavy metal you got there !!
Marantz 1060 with original wood case.
Marantz 104 Tuner with home made wood case.
Marantz 2100 Tuner.
Does a Superscope count as a Marantz? If so I have a Superscope R-1270.
Here's the pm8005 and sa8005
I enjoy the combo.
Great stuff in this thread.

Heavy Metal allmost complete:
Turntable DUAL 1229 is in process of restoring, and DUAL CD-120 in process of fixing.
Y'all know what this one is? :3
Awesome 1060 in black !
Here's my 2252b with my miracord 46 on top. Industrial design at its finest. I need to get a light replaced, but she sounds sweet.
Want to share my 2250B with you. I restored it last December and when listening to it hours become minutes... The state is nearly mint.
Sounds very well on my Infinity Kappa 7.2 - above there's a Nakamichi Stereo Receiver which is also sounding very audiophile.
Picture comes from smartphone...
Can't say this is "mine", but it's in my possession until further notice. The case (pictured) is pretty torn up, Someone in the past must have tried picking it up by the screen and ripped it up/off in the back. Also the holes in the bottom have been torn , but I've monkeyed with it and got everything sounding perfect. Not a hum, or a pop, or a crackle in the audio.
P.S. The photo shows a burned out "stereo" bulb, that I fixed before taking the video.
As with the other thread started with the same intent, reported.
I have a Marantz TT 330 and I'm wanting to upgrade the stylus and cartridge. Any suggestions? I've been told to look in to getting a Shure M97xE. Also this is an automatic, can I replace the tonearm on this model as well?
